MTB into the New Year

December is one of the best months to ride in Oaxaca, the transition from the wet into the dry season makes the dirt conditions unique. Let's shuttle up to amazing singletrack while we prepare to wrap on the year in Oaxaca city. This trip is a perfect winter getaway to ride bikes and also be part of the cultural festivities in Oaxaca around New Years

Day 1: Welcome to Mexico, your guides will pick you up at the airport and take you to the Transierra Norte HQ. They will help with bike assembling while you have one of our craft beers and a delicious dinner. You will receive a short briefing in regards to the Mountain Bike adventure you have ahead to then be set in your lodging.
